THE LAST DAY FOR PHOTOS IS SUNDAY OCTOBER 3, 2021 at 12 midnight, Eastern time. No exceptions, sorry!

2022 Tripawds Calendar Models Photo Requirements

Let's make this the best collection of amputee pets calendars ever. Please read ALL details below before sending your pic!

SEND ONE GREAT PHOTO BY DEADLINE. This is the only way to get featured in one of three 2022 Tripawds Heroes and Angels Calendars!

All registered Tripawds members and/or @tripawds followers and fans may submit one (1) photo of their three legged dog, cat, or other animal from past or present. Here's what it needs to look like:

  • Photos must clearly show that an animal is a Tripawd
  • Pictures of a Tripawd with a four legged pal are fine, but the Tripawd needs to be prominently shown.
  • Has your Tripawd been in a previous calendar? That's OK! Just send a new photo.
  • Got more than 1 Tripawd? No problem! Enter one photo per Tripawd, or send one group photo.

You MUST include the following information:

  • Name of your Tripawd(s) and any other pets featured in the photo.
  • Male or Female
  • Age
  • Hometown
  • How long as a Tripawd
  • Reason for becoming a Tripawd

Incomplete submissions will not be included.

Tripawds Calendar Photo Size Requirements

Tripawds Calendar ModelsImage Enlarger

Your ONE photo must be of good enough quality ("resolution") so it clearly reproduces when enlarged for a paper calendar. Poor quality images with small files sizes look blurry in print!

  • Minimum Image Dimensions: 2400 x 1800
  • Landscape Orientation is best.

Your photo size must be at least 2400 x 1800 dimensions.

For example, this photo is not good because the dimensions are too small.

Calendar Photo Bad Image
A small photo like this looks terrible in print.

IMPORTANT: Photos with sizes too small for a full-page image, might still be in a calendar. But it will be small and grouped with other small photos. Photos submitted at a resolution file size unsuitable for print production won't be included.

How to find your photo file size

On a Mac computer, view the photo. “Get Info” by typing “ + i” (Command I).

Calendar Photo Bad Image Get Info - Mac

On a Windows machine, right-click to view image properties. Or hover your mouse over the photo in your Library or image viewer.

Calendar Photo Image PropertiesImage Enlarger

A few last tips.

Please do NOT:

  • Email more than one photo. We know that's hard, but you can do it!
  • Ask us to pick one for you. It delays production, we will not do it. Sorry.
  • Request a specific month. Photos are randomly placed throughout the year.

Where to Send Your Photo:

  • Only emailed photos are accepted.
  • Email ONE photo HERE to this email  ("admin-at-tripawds-dot-com")
  • You will receive a reply to your email or post confirming your image file is suitable for reproduction.
 If you send your pic and don't hear back from us, contact us again to make sure we got it. If you don't, your Tripawd will miss out!

Qualifying photos sent by the 10/3/21 deadline will be included in one of the three 2022 Tripawds Community Calendars. Pics sent after the deadline will NOT. Thanks for understanding.

Hope you rethink  that Michelle!  Sassy is such an impressive  part of this community,  as are Bosch, Snickers and little Simba too.  You could get creative and make Sassy the main focus, but superimpose  Bosch, Snickers  and Simba around her.  Super impose isnt the right word, but you know what I mean......maybe?

She's been gone 8 years now.  Probably time (as much as it breaks my heart) to let someone else put their dogs on the calendar.

I am laughing out loud now, my first thought at that small photo was that it was the back end of some funky colored goose icon_lol Second glance of course made me say DOH!
